Description:
Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. Not only can model-checking algorithms be formulated as games, but the interaction of reactive systems with their environments can also be modeled as a game. The aim of this course is to demonstrate the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata as an underlying technical tool.
